  • Publication number: 20210021867
    Abstract: A method of coding at least one image comprising the steps of splitting the image into a plurality of blocks, of grouping said blocks into a predetermined number of subsets of blocks, of coding each of said subsets of blocks in parallel, the blocks of a subset considered being coded according to a predetermined sequential order of traversal. The coding step comprises, for a current block of a subset considered, the sub-step of predictive coding of said current block with respect to at least one previously coded and decoded block, and the sub-step of entropy coding of said current block on the basis of at least one probability of appearance of a symbol.

  • Publication number: 20200322609
    Abstract: A method for coding includes; segmenting an image into blocks; grouping blocks into a number of subsets; coding, using an entropy coding module, each subset, by associating digital information with symbols of each block of a subset, including, for the first block of the image, initializing state variables of the coding module; and generating a data sub-stream representative of at least one of the coded subsets of blocks. Where a current block is the first block to be coded of a subset, symbol occurrence probabilities for the first current block are determined based on those for a coded and decoded predetermined block of at least one other subset. Where the current block is the last coded block of the subset: writing, in the sub-stream representative of the subset, the entire the digital information associated with the symbols during coding of the blocks of the subset, and implementing the initializing sub-step.

  • Patent number: 9819934
    Abstract: A method is provided for decoding a signal that represents at least one image. The method implements at least one iteration of the following steps, for at least one block of the image to be decoded: determining at least one selection parameter from at least one characteristic associated with at least one reference pixel of a reference region of the image, the reference region including at least one previously encoded/decoded block and/or at least one pixel predicted in a preceding iteration; selecting at least one pixel to be predicted in the block to be decoded from the at least one selection parameter; and for at least one selected pixel to be predicted, referred to as an anchor pixel, predicting the anchor pixel from at least one reference pixel, thereby outputting a predicted pixel.

  • Patent number: 9756357
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for encoding a sequence of images by predicting at least one current image by forward motion compensation from at least one reference image. Prediction implements, for at least one current block of the current image: forward projection of a block of the reference image on the current image, delivering a projected block at least partially overlapping the current block; partitioning the current block delivering a sub-block at least partially overlapped by at least one projected block; and at least one iteration of the following steps for at least one overlapped sub-block: checking that the overlapped sub-block complies with a predetermined allotting criterion; with a positive check, allotting, to the overlapped sub-block, one of the projected motion vectors; and with a negative check, and so long as a predetermined minimum size is not reached for the overlapped sub-block: partitioning of the overlapped sub-block.

  • Patent number: 9516331
    Abstract: A method and apparatus are provided for encapsulating a plurality of data substreams encoded in a bit stream, wherein the encoded data substream is obtained by entropy encoding of a symbol subsequence representing an image or a series of images. The method includes grouping data substreams into substream pairs according to an iterative traversal order predetermined from the plurality of substreams, and on the basis of a pair of the substreams, obtaining a symmetrical pair by reversing a data order making up the second substream of the pair. The obtained pairs are then concatenated within a sequence. The binary stream is created by encapsulating the sequence and information related to a number of substreams and related to the sizes of pairs of symmetrical substreams.
